Sharing keyboard layouts
iTerm has a useful feature to automatically save settings:
However, it saves too much, discovered bonjour services, etc, that is not suitable for sharing the settings with multiple computers.
and things like window positions is not shareable:
<key>NSWindow Frame SharedPreferences</key> - <string>439 683 796 486 0 0 2560 1417 </string> + <string>439 715 796 486 0 0 2560 1417 </string>
For example, I have made keyboard customizations and I sync the file with different desktops using MegaSync (previously used Dropbox).
- save less to the
- checkboxes to allow specify what to save
.plistfor sharing keymaps
if it's just keyboard layout sharing, I could even consider making my keymap available from github/gitlab for other users to use.
ps: I understand the saved file is just dump of:
plutil -convert xml1 -o - ~/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist > com.googlecode.iterm2.plist
